Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love! ~ Hamilton Wright Mabie
What is better than dressing up for a holiday party? Today I set together a few mesh pieces with relative success once I tinkered with sizing. On top I have the bodice from one of Raven Pennyfeather’s beautiful gowns complete with her characteristic decolletage decoration and a shoulder scarf that I tinted more purple to match the outfit.
I am wearing a beautifully textured mesh skirt from Poulet Koenkamp that she is releasing. The difference in use of a basic mesh skirt is evidenced by the textures—Poulet brings this one to life and makes it chic and stylish with the shaded pleated fabrics. I also donned one of her new headpieces, this piled with roses. I appreciate that it’s not multicolored—then the hat doesn’t become the sole focal point of the outfit. (Ever notice that Katherine Middleton’s hats never overwhelm? It’s has it should be. Her face and smile are most important.)
Chic bowed pumps from Tya Fallingbridge finish the look. These come with a hud so the bow and sole/platform can be changed. Brilliant and versatile.
Speaking of the face, I am wearing the newest skin from NatalieWells. I love the eyes and the contours of the face—the skin almost makes my shape look like I am square-jawed. I have added Mocksoup Graves’ translucent lipstick because the lips on this skin are a little dry looking and the color adds a bit. I also added Kianna Noel’s eyeliner to dress the look up a bit. This skin provides a great palette for adding different looks.
Come, woo me, woo me, for now I am in a holiday humor, and like enough to consent. ~ William Shakespeare
